Menopur Questions

Postby Onestepcloser » Sat Feb 28, 2015 7:12 pm

Hi ladies I am currently on CD4 and I take a shot of menopur on monday which will be CD6 for me. Just wondering as I of course have looked online but what is it exactly that the menopur is for? is it used as a trigger or to grow the follicles or to release the folliclles?... anyway im sure you can see where im stumped. I've heard of women taking it for a few days and I only have to take it once does it have an alternate use if on a different dose. oh and i am supposed to take 150 IU is that a high dose or low? sorry i guess im a question maniac tonight lol thanks for answers if you have them :P

Menopur is used to help the follies grow,I had Menopur +Gonal F this cycle for a better chance,I only had 75,side effects are not really bad but the injection is a bit painful!
